Abstract

British Theatre after Brexit One Year On Aleks Sierz Fetch me’ ammer. Edward Bond, Saved Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it. Bertolt Brecht couple of years ago, our family got a new puppy. It was called Brexit. Like any new arrival, it completely changed our daily lives. Its acquisition A was, of course, an accident. Something done without much thought; a moment of instinctive action. And, at first, we were all fascinated by this romp - ing, tumbling, and joyfully barking creature. There was lots of tail-wagging, and some messy moments. A cross between a bulldog and a pit bull, it seemed to be such a fascinating beast. Early on, however, we spotted some problems: the little devil started to chew up any bank statements he could find. And he affected our finances in many other ways, too. After all, Brexit made our holidays more expen - sive. It was costly to feed him. So, I must admit that half the family have always been skeptical about what they ironically call “our independence day.” And it’s hard to see how he could have ever made our family great
